I personally have not used this service but have looked into it several times since we moved to Michigan. We have no family in the area and didn’t know a single person when we first moved here. AKA- no babysitter!
Sittercity is a site where parents can search for and meet background checked and qualified babysitters and nannies in their area. Searching for a caregiver is super simple – they have a quick search but you also have the option to put in as many qualifications that you’d like. Availability, distance away from your home, age, and years of experience are just a few of the filters you have available.
Profiles of potential caregivers are easy and FREE to scan. Most include a picture, qualifications, and details on their preferences (think number of children, wage expectations, travel distance and availability). The profiles will also list any reviews the caregiver has been given through the website along with a note on whether or not a background check is available.
So if you can view profiles for free…why sign up for a membership right? With a membership you are able to not only contact any caregivers that you may be interested in, but you can also view their background checks.
